    England and Brentford forward Ivan Toney on message to fans: "It's very important [fan support], like I've said, in football you need that 12th man. And the fans are that, when they're behind us, cheering us on, creating that atmosphere, it does push the players forward. I'm sure they'll be doing that with the next game and the games going forward. We love the videos when everyone back home, beers going everywhere, the excitement. Hopefully that can continue."

Whether that is one minute or 90 minutes, I am ready to be involved."

    "For those who racially abuse a player for missing a penalty or doing something wrong, more fool them."

    On the England fans: "You heard the noise, the atmosphere was top. They played their part in getting us over the line."

    On whether the dramatic circ*mstances of the Slovakia win has changed the mood in the England camp: "It has a little bit, but we take it a game at a time.

    More from England forward Ivan Toney on the impact he can make off the bench: "I feel like, people call them substitutes, others finishers. I think you have to be ready and there's more than 11 players needed to win a tournament."

    On how he works out his role when he goes on as a substitute: "We know the next role. You see towards the end of the game there were a lot of attacking players on the pitch and we had to shuffle everyone about, players playing in positions they don't usually play. But the quality of players we have are capable of doing that."

    England v Switzerland (Sat, 17:00 BST)

    England

    England forward Ivan Toney on his role in Jude Bellingham's acrobatic late equaliser against Slovakia: "I feel we do a lot at club football. If you can't get the ball you [do something else]. I pulled the defender away. Take nothing away from Jude... a run is not a wasted run even if you don't get the ball."

    On controlling his emotions after being sent on so late against Slovakia, he added: "At my club [Brentford], there is a guy called Michael Caulfield [a sports psychologist] and he talks about controlling your emotions. Yes, I was annoyed but there was still 30 minutes of football to play [including extra-time] and you have got to come out of that mood and focus.

    "There is a lot more to give for myself. There was 30 minutes of football and you have to play your part and I did that."

    On not having a lot of minutes, Toney said: "It's always going to be tough, it's tough for all of us as we play week out for our clubs.
